When is love good enough?
Monday 15 February 7.30PM - 9.30PM
Nieuwe Herengracht 18, Amsterdam
The expectations are high. As relationship therapist Esther Perel points out, it is incredible what people long from each other. Your partner(s) should be your anchor, your best friend ánd your ardent love as well. What can you expect from love? And what does love expect from you? What is your ideal image within love and how does it relate to the so-called "perfect" image?
Love does not have an unambiguous recipe, but there are ingredients that make the taste. According to the American psychologist Robert Sternberg, a "good love relationship" consists of three dimensions: intimacy, passion and commitment. During this flourishing class we look at these dimensions and discuss them, talk about the background of doubts and ways of finding balance between basic values and desires.
What can you expect?
Flourishing classes are inspiring workshops in which we discuss themes that go beyond daily practice. For example: life, love, relationships, friendship, career and identity. Maybe you ask yourself the question; what do I really think is important? Or what drives me and does that suit me? With disruptive exercises and in an experimental setting we encourage you to think and take action. That means that we don't stick to theoretical knowledge but that we also get to work actively. So that you can go home with new insights and a concrete step.
The activities of de Kwekerij are meant for all students and young professionals who want to flourish between the ages of 18-35, regardless of background, gender identity or sexual preference. If the prices are a barrier for you to come, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will discuss the possibilities! We like to think along with you. Unfortunately, de Kwekerij is not (yet) accessible for wheelchairs. However, you can attend the flourishing class online or we can think of another creative solution that works for you. If you have any doubts about the accessibility to one of our events for any other reason, please send us an email as well. We hope to meet you soon!
